Black and white photography is important to me because it makes me think as a photographer. A lot of time, I depend on the lights and colors to create an appealing photo but in B&W, I don’t have those elements to use as a crutch. I actually started out my photography career shooting concerts. I wanted to see a show for free so I volunteered to photograph it for my school newspaper. Even now, after photographing different subjects, concerts and music still inspire me the most. Black and white photos are timeless. They have inspired artists for ages and they definitely will continue to inspire me.
